YOLO Board Adventures
YOLO Board Adventures at the WaterColor BoatHouse offers guests the opportunity to experience what many consider the world's fastest growing watersport, stand up paddleboarding. Stand up paddleboarding is an easy-to-learn, adaptable activity perfect for families and perfect for exploring Western Lake, one of South Walton's rare coastal dune lakes. The low impact activity is suitable for anyone from children to seniors and offers the chance to explore the natural beauty of WaterColor from a unique vantage point.
Aptly named for the mantra, "You Only Live Once," YOLO Board is a locally-owned stand up paddleboard company that has quickly gained the reputation along Northwest Florida's Gulf Coast and beyond as the custom paddleboard of choice. Rentals, lessons and merchandise sales are all offered at the YOLO Board Adventures location seven days a week from 9:00am to 5:00pm.
